A Testament to Getting Older

As I was sitting trying to think of what to post about today, my left thigh started to tighten and I got a leg cramp.  Let me repeat that for you I WAS SITTING IN A CHAIR.  Not, running or lifting something - sitting.  The pain that shot through my leg made me jump up and half hobble, half drag walk my way up an down the hall while I whined "oh shit, oh shit" over and over again.  I'm sitting back down, though I can feel the burning sensation on the back of the thigh like my muscles are about to rip through my leg or something.  This is yet another affirmation that I am getting older.
I've throw out my knee standing from a seated postion
I've hurt my back lying in bed
I've hurt my neck turning it to look at something
These are simplistic tasks people.  Functional feats.  But NO, apparently for me every fricking movement or non-movement for that matter lands me in the bathroom looking for Icy Hot.

  1. I get horrible HORRIBLE cramps in my inner thighs...usually when I'm lying in bed sleeping. And the "Oh shit! Oh shit!" commences.

    My foolproof relief for these cramps is to drink an Emergen-C. It takes a minute or two for it to work but I swear it does.

    PS Masked Mom sent me :).

  2. That is exactly what I was doing while I was hobbling down the hall, though it was more like a ohshitohshitohshit!
    I'll have to try the Emergen-C, thanks for the tip! And thanks for stopping by.
